In 2008, I started my research fot the Battle of Grandmenil.
The stories of veterans and civilians gives a good view about what happend here, in Grandmenil.
In 2009 I launched the website and I thought it was the end of a long period of research and puzzeling. At that time I did not realize that it was only the beginning of a quest, that would never end.
The Battle of the Bulge is still very tangible, not just literally, but you feel it when you talk with the older residents. On one hand, they are willing to tell, on the other hand they find it very difficult. They have lost family, they saw how their houses were destroyed, they were close to the hell of it.
I hope you enjoy this website.
